Read MoreHide Full Article

TechnipFMC’s (FTI - Free Report) wholly-owned subsidiary FMC Wellhead Equipment Sdn. Bhd. received an integrated Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (iEPCI) contract from Petronas Carigali for the Limbayong deepwater development project off the Malaysia coast.

Petronas Carigali, a subsidiary of PETRONAS, is an exploration and production company, and is fully-owned by the Government of Malaysia. Notably, Petronas is the operator, with a 100% participating interest in the Limbayong Gas Field.

Per the terms of the contract, FMC Wellhead will provide the Front-End Engineering Design (“FEED”) in an effort to limit project expenses. Further, it will oversee the integration, engineering, procurement, construction and installation as well as the implementation of the subsea production system.

The iEPCI contract involves the buildout of 10 deepwater wells along with their tieback to the existing Limbayong Floating Production Storage and Offloading (“FPSO”) unit in Malaysia. Notably, TechnipFMC, through its subsidiary, will design, manufacture, deliver and install subsea equipment, which comprises subsea trees, manifolds, umbilicals, flexible risers, flowlines, jumpers and other subsea hardware necessary for the project.

The project, which is estimated to be around $250-$500 million, is expected to be conducted from TechnipFMC’s Kuala Lumpur office. Importantly, the London-based company will exploit its local manufacturing plants in Malaysia for the preparation of subsea systems and associated resources. On its part, the contract merges TechniFMC’s integrated subsea solution with its Subsea 2.0 products, an advanced product platform that integrates uniformly with iEPCI and offers a more efficient project performance.
